_MG_4488 NYC_MG_4488 NYC What's Creativity?

The use of the imagination to develop original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic piece of work. Creativity involves two processes: thinking, then producing. If you have ideas, but don’t act on them, you are imaginative but not creative.

There’s no text book for being creative. Creativity is personal, it gets developed through years of practice, trial, error, mistakes and doing something over and over again.
